Join us and you’ll be part of an organisation that takes pride in its people and purpose: creating long-lasting solutions to meet the needs of generations to come.

WSP's Water team are seeking Principal and Senior Drainage Engineers to join our fast-growing team providing drainage services for WSP from our offices in the North West.

A typical week would include:

* Being an integral part providing support both locally within the North West and around the country

* Helping to deliver highway and rail projects both nationally and internationally

Our projects range in size from smaller local authority development to large scale national projects including those delivered by Highways England, Network Rail and HS2. We also lead the provision of airport drainage services within WSP working on schemes globally.

As well as leading the drainage design for all key WSP transport and infrastructure projects, our national team also leads the wider Water Environment provision for the transport and infrastructure sector. The successful candidates will therefore be working alongside colleagues with leading skills in drainage, hydrology, hydraulic modelling, river engineering, WFD and tidal engineering amongst others.

We'd love to hear from you if you have:

The successful candidates should have technical expertise and experience in the design of surface and foul water drainage systems for public infrastructure projects; including the use of Micro Drainage design software.

The candidates should have achieved (or be close to achieving) Chartered status with CIWEM or the ICE and have technical expertise and experience in one or more of the following areas:

* Surface water drainage design;

* Foul water drainage design;

* DMRB Volume 4 Section 2 and MCHW Series 500;

* Sewers for Adoptions 7th Edition;

* River engineering and scour assessment;

* AutoCAD, Civils 3D;

The candidates will be responsible for technical, management and commercial aspects of projects. Experience of working with local authorities and rail/highway projects would be highly advantageous.

What if we can?

What if we can have work-life balance? What if we can be rewarded in ways that support our individual needs? What if we can be accepted for who we are? Here at WSP – we can!

WSP recognizes that work is only one part of our lives and making time for the other things in our life is important – be that our families, our friends or ourselves. So, if working from home, working part-time or having flexible start and finish time will help with this let us know as part of your application.

As well as rewarding you with competitive pay, WSP offers standard benefits including 25 days annual leave, pension schemes, life assurance, personal accident cover and paid professional subscriptions, and some not so standard benefits as part of our flexible benefits scheme – so if you would like to hop on a new bike (cycle to work scheme) or thrill the family with your Lego building skills (Discount at Legoland Windsor) – WSP can help!

Be you, be happy - we strive to have a friendly and inclusive culture which respects and maximizes the contribution individuals can bring to WSP. We recognise the benefits that people with varying backgrounds and experiences can bring. VIBE (our LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Group) and our Gender Balance Group work with the business to help ensure we continue to promote the right environment to enable LGBT+ and female employees to reach their full potential, and to ensure we continue to promote equality, inclusivity and diversity for everyone.
